Hyundai Mobis and Cognitive Pilot Develop Neural Brain for Self-Driving Cars

Hyundai Mobis, a tier-1 automotive component supplier, and Cognitive Pilot, the Russian software corporation that develops AI-based advanced driver assistance systems, have announced the completion of a software module for active safety and autonomous driving.

The computer vision-based software module is capable of recognizing various classes of objects moving along the roads such as various types of cars, buses, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians. The core technologies used in the development of the module are deep learning neural networks that provide the system with the required recognition accuracy.

The module will be integrated in the control systems of luxury vehicles, making them even smarter and safer. The developed ADAS system and computer vision based software module match the 3rd and 4th levels of automation. Cognitive Pilot, a subsidiary of Cognitive Technologies group, is Russia’s first player in the autonomous vehicles market. Besides standard vehicles, the multi-platform C-Pilot system can be installed on trains, urban electric trains and agricultural machinery. In 2018 the company has also developed a 4D imaging radar for self-driving cars.

The Cognitive 4D Imaging Radar can detect objects at a distance of 300 m in the range of azimuth angles greater than 90-100 degrees and elevation angles up to 15-20 degrees.

Cognitive Pilot has won several international awards this year, including at 2019 Automotive Tech.AD Berlin, the No.1 European event on technical challenges for vehicle automation Level 4+, where it was the Award Winner in the “The Most Innovative ADAS Technology” category; and the AVT ACES Award from Autonomous Vehicle Technology (AVT) magazine, where Cognitive Pilot was the winner in the ‘Autonomy | Controllers’ category (C-Pilot Agrodroid Project).
